Fun New Product and Open House Plans

Hi Everyone

I have been so busy with trying to get the shop up and running I have sorely neglected you all!

We are busy busy working on the shop and getting ready to host our soft opening and Open House this Saturday from 11-3, drop in for some hot apple cider, some treats and we can chat a little about paint and how you can change your furniture from drab to fab in no time. We cant wait to show you our Miss Mustard Seed Paint Milk Paint line and accessories, and now we are equally happy to announce we will be carrying Homestead House 100% Acrylic Paint as well!


It’s another wonderful product from Homestead House, made in Canada, no priming, no SMELL, well, you can read above, ha ha! It has awesome coverage, and you REALLY REALLY don’t need a top coat. I know RIGHT? I have not received my full order yet, but I have had the chance to try a few cans and wow, really love this and so happy to be carrying it and can’t wait to introduce it to you all. I am SO loving that it’s  MADE IN CANADA, by people I have met and who I greatly respect and like a lot. (ok Jennylyn you can send me a check now) KIDDING, but they are awesome and have been super supportive of my opening. (Like over the top super supportive)

So much going on, will post some pictures of all the “fun” things we have been doing around the shop once I catch my breath!

BTW…What do you think of that door??  Its one of the fun projects we’ve finished for the shop…my hubs has been awesome at helping me out with some wacky ideas (he does not always GET the concept, but plays along and is usually ok with the results) This door would be one of those things, a barn door for a bathroom built on a fun Friday night at the you hubs, you rocked that barn door hardware…door details  (and a post on how we turned a yucky bathroom into a cute shop bathroom on a REALLY tight budget – coming up soon…and pictures of the shop. But come see for yourself, pop in on Saturday and say hi. If you are a reader of the blog let me know. I’m s anxious to meet you!

Off to scrub paint from my hair (oh how I wish I was kidding)

For my US family and friends, have a WONDERFUL Thanksgiving, I hope its filled with wonderful family time
